 Automated Analytics

Management Reporting
Solar Efficiency Curve shows the ratio of the electrical
output of a solar cell.
Automatic calculation of the solar cell conversion
efficiency can be used to compare and find the worst
performing cells.
Lifetime conversion efficiency data is stored and
displayed.
Daily and monthly reports can be generated and
exported into Word/Excel for any data items being
collected in system
